EVALUATION OF IN SITU TESTS IN COHESIVE FRICTIONAL SOILS

CARACTERISTIQUES DES SOLS COHERENTS ET FROTTANTS A PARTIR DES ESSAIS EN PLACE

Interpretation of in situ test results in cohesive frictional materials is addressed. Factors affecting test results are considered in relation to in situ testing techniques and soil characteristics. Emphasis is placed on the seismic cone penetration test and self-boring pressuremeter test. The former technique makes possible the measurement of the small strain shear modulus, the later the estimation of shear modulus, shear strength and in situ horizontal stress
